Are you working in your dream job? If so, that’s awesome and congratulations. However if you aren’t, what’s standing in your way? Maybe it’s time for a change, or maybe there’s something you can do to make the job you have right now turn into a dream job. Finding the best work for the best version of ourselves is sometimes a matter of perspective and… dare we say it? Innovation.

Goes Around, Comes Around

Swedish motion graphic artist Andreas Wannerstedt has created a series of loop animations, appropriately titled “Oddly Satisfying,” that are as beautiful as they are pleasing to watch. It’s easy to become hypnotized and lose all sense of time as you watch unusual objects align just right over and over. Colossal has a collection of the animations and further information.
